at winning that nomination. mitt romney had also run in 2008. remember? he lost to john mccain that year. but that year, 2008, also was not john mccain's first effort at winning the republican presidential nomination. he had run before as well. he had run in the year 2000, when he lost to george w. bush. and while that john mccain campaign and his loss that year has mostly been remembered for the egregiously racist dirty tricks played against john mccain in the south carolina primary that year, that's mostly what we think of when we think of him losing to george w. bush that year, now what is starting to become the more salient thing about that losing run, about that losing attempt at winning the republican presidential nomination, what seems more salient now is who john mccain's national co-chair was for that run. it was republican senator chuck hagel. there he is. you can see him in the little circle on the left there. with john mccain's entourage as john mccain was getting ready to launch his presidential bid back in 2000. this is the same chuck hagel who is president obama's nominee

. >> it did. >> no i would not, because we know what the situation is today. >> for senator john mccain, immigration reform had been a priority. and then he was against it. and now he is for it again. some modern figures in the republican party are associated with immigration reform, people like former president george w. bush and his brother, jeb bush, former republican party chairman mel martinez, who last night i described as the former florida state republican party chairman. he was the national chairman. i'm sorry for that. he is a former florida senator. so some of these guys are associated throughout their careers with immigration reform. but the rest of the party, the current elected officials in the party are just whipsawing around on the issue wildly, taking wildly different and directly contradictory responses from election cycle to election cycle. as republicans, i think, try to decide if the upward creeping percentage of latinos in the american electorate is something they're going to use to stoke their base's fear of a brown planet, or whether it's something they're go

of state there john husted began stumping for this idea of making the electoral college change. hey, it's just an idea, right? but now it's very, very quiet in ohio. and that leaves michigan. oh, michigan. michigan, my nominee for incapable of being embarrassed. move over, florida. michigan has a bill on the way with the republican sponsor who is quite unembarrassed by the attention now or his failure to pass the same kind of bill last year. quote, the bill got no traction last year. there were people convinced romney was going to win. and that might take electoral votes from him. but now, now that romney lost, now maybe even rick snyder, the governor is warming up to the idea this week and saying so publicly. governor snyder saying it is fair to change the rules since the election is not for a few more years yet. we started this week with six states on the map where republicans were talking about changing the rules to elect the president so you could use the gerrymandered congressional maps to make the presidential election go the way the house vote went this year where democrats got m

the united states in the world is a really, really hard job. today john kerry was officially sworn in to take over that job from hillary clinton. and he got to what amounts from a really well informed warning from his predecessor about the difficulties of that job. the evidence-based world is a hard enough place to live and to operate for us as a nation without half of our domestic politics being dominated by the perceived desire to defend against the muslim obama jihad on ronald reagan's childhood home. are we hampered as a nation in our ability to address real problems in the evidence-based world if half of the people in politics do not live in that world? and if so, how does that get fixed? joining us now is chris hayes, who all of you will see again at 8:00 a.m. eastern tomorrow, because that's when he starts his show "up with chris hayes" here on msnbc. hi, chris. thanks for being here. >> thanks for having me. >> muslim jihad on president ronald reagan's childhood home. is she also diagnosing an american problem that should or could be fixed? >> it's -- yes. it should be fixed. and i do

. you might remember in 2007 it was john mccain with the support of the chairman senator who went on to be chairman of the republican party, mel martinez, all supporting a comprehensive immigration proposal, much like this one today, that never went anywhere that year. by the time john mccain was running for president the year after, he said actually he would vote down his own bill. >> at this point, if your original proposal came to a vote on the senate floor, would you vote for it? >> it won't. it won't. that's why we went through the debate. no, i would not, because we know what the situation is today. that people want the border secured first. >> john mccain in 2008, running against his own immigration position from 2007. in order to try to get his party's nomination for the presidency that year. in order to win his party's presidential nomination this past year, mitt romney was the champion of self-deportation. remember, he said he would veto the dream act, and he brought on the guy who wrote the papers please law in arizona as his immigration adviser. the republican party's

states senate. with the announcement that the appointee to fill the john kerry senate see would be a man named mo cowan. that means, hurrah, as you see here, that the u.s. senate will now have more black members than ever in its history, which is great news, right? and here is the rest of the headline. the new record number of black members in the united states senate is two. a total of two out of 100. that's the record. we've hit the record. it is a remarkably low number to be a record. still, interestingly, this appointment to the u.s. senate today is actually the second one that governor deval patrick of massachusetts has made as massachusetts governor. when senator ted kennedy died in office, the governor made a similar choice for the appointment to that seat when he chose, also like mo cowan, a trusted former staffer who had no designs on running for the seat himself. and if you think about that, it's actually a pretty respectful way to handle the profoundly anti-democratic process of one person just getting to designate a person to be a u.s. senator because there is a vacancy. we d
